Introducing Trading APIs

In our continuous endeavor to improve our clients’ trading experience with us, we are glad to announce that we have introduced trading APIs for all our clients. Since our inception, FYERS has had a technology-first approach and our efforts in building a robust and technologically advanced platform differentiates us from the crowd in the stock market. Moreover, we are known for our capabilities in terms of the functionality and ease of our platform, smooth order execution and accuracy of the historical and real-time market data.

Since the commencement of algorithmic/programmatic trading, it has drawn attention from all strata of the trading fraternity because of its broad functionality and possibilities. However, retail traders in India have not been able to implement systematic trading properly for various reasons such as the lack of reliable APIs, bug-infested platforms and lack of proper infrastructure, documentation etc. Due to a combination of one or more such factors, implementing trading strategies and managing portfolios seamlessly has always been a major pain point.

We launched FYERS trading API mainly to address the requirements of the three focused groups, namely startups, serious Algo traders and third party platforms that aim to resolve problems faced by the trading community. We understand its a cumbersome task to build a technologically advanced order execution infrastructure in the capital market environment, due to various stringent regulatory requirements and especially for startups and new enterprises, as we went through the budding phase. Through FYERS trading API, you will be able to access our market-ready infrastructure without having to spend any money or set up a brokerage.   

With our Trading API,  you will be able to deploy your algorithmic trading strategies, build your own innovative trading platform or align your specific requirements and trading logic. You can build and develop your sophisticated platform/strategy and offer it to FYERS’ clients. While you focus on your core competency, we will deal with operational and regulatory requirements on your behalf. As a brokerage, we have the standard and efficient processes in place which are handled by an experienced and skilled team that we have developed over a period of time. We specialize in all operational aspects of the business such as regulatory compliance, account opening/KYC, depository participant (DP) operations, customer support etc. FYERS is a SEBI registered stockbroker and broking member of all the major exchanges in India. Hence, will have access to all the segments and contracts actively traded over the exchanges in India. Integrating with FYERS using our API will let you connect to the state of the art infrastructure and will facilitate in the real-time order executions and trading functionalities.

The next significant advantage of integrating with FYERS trading API is, our pricing. This offering is relatively new and in India generally, brokers that do offer it charge a bomb for this facility.  We have targeted our API solutions for serious users only who we believe will be active; therefore, you don’t have to pay any fees to access API. Our API is completely free of cost to our clients!

To integrate our API, you will need to be our client. If you’re not yet our client, you will need to open a Trading and Demat account with us here. You can read more about API integration related information and request access in FYERS API. It shall be approved in 1 working day after you fill the required for therein. You can read our detailed API documentation here.

We will be happy to enable your initiatives through our APIs. We look forward to creating magic together! All the very best.

    Hi Team,

    Is there a way to get instant updates on my orders, once its been traded/filed (using socket io, or a kafka listener etc?) I don’t find any in api docs. I have to do http call every duration of seconds to get order book updated. Please suggest.

    Thanks

  • Avatar Gurpreet Singh says:

    The api is excellent. Only issue is there’s no api to get real time quotes.

    • Tejas Khoday Tejas Khoday says:

      Thanks & yes, we don’t provide data as of now. You can subscribe for it from any authorized data vendor.

      • Avatar Divyanshu says:

        Hi Tejas, first of all happy returns of the day.

        It would’ve be really helpful if you provide real time quotes in excel.,so that, it even helps non-coders like me to put formulas & design for my specific needs.

        Hey Divyanshu, Thanks for wishing me on my birthday! That too, over here in the comments section of the blog. We’re in the process of tying up with a well-known data vendor who specializes in data. Will keep you posted.

    Looks like I’ve to do some research on API which I was completely unaware of until now. I’ve got some insight thanks to your article Mr. Tejas. And giving it free of charge! That shows the confidence you have on your team and the product. Cheers!

    Please provide any introductory video.
    How does it work?
    How it’ll be helpful?
    So that beginners would have clear idea.

    • Tejas Khoday Tejas Khoday says:

      Hey Naveen. We shall create videos too to explain how APIs work but in the meantime, you can try finding some information on the web. Once you have a basic understanding about API and want to clarify your doubts, you can do so in this Telegram Group – FYERS API Discussions.

  • Avatar Ram K says:

    Hello Tejas. To make this API popular, you need to put out a lot of content that helps people address the learning curve in adopting it and benefiting from it. Will be glad to help in putting out tutorials on various platforms to get people using various other platforms to also migrate here. It benefits me by helping me also get onto this platform as fast as I can.

    Let me know if it helps.
